About us

Welcome to Teresa Green, a unique range of printed textiles designed and hand printed by Teresa Cole.
I set up Teresa Green in 2000 after graduating in printed textiles from Loughborough University school of art and design.
In 2001 I received a setting up grant from the Crafts council and support from the Princes Trust to set up studio in an old stable block in the village of Barrow Upon Soar in Leicestershire, I have now moved to Devon and found a beautiful new workshop on the Perridge Estate nestled in 100 acres of woodland.
I source all our fabrics from within the UK, our linen comes from Ireland and our inks are all water based.
The integrity of natural materials is important to me.
I don't even wear any synthetics!
I have exhibited nationally and internationally over the past 10 years , including attending the New York International Gift Fair, Maison et Objet Paris and undertaking a research trip to Japan.  
The importance of our range having a function is also key- the utilitarian, functionality and the design play equal roles.
The items are a canvas for the prints, and are designed around the shape and layout of each object.
I have a passion for antique kitchenallia- especially kitchen scales and ladle shaped spoons.  Both grandpa’s have also fed my imagination with crammed sheds full of old garden objects and treasure-I have an obsession for elongated watering cans and apple ladders….

I hope you will enjoy using our items and the sense of history and time that will impart itself upon each product as the years go by.
Thank you for visiting our site.
